After many years of wondering over Taiga meteo stations searching for a suitable place to dwell Natalia and Yuri settled on Olhon island, an isolated island caught in crosswinds of lake Baikal. They hoped finally to find happiness. Yuri dreamed of plentiful hunting and fishing. Natalia supposed that her life far from the hassle and bustle of the cities would enable her to raise her children in a pristine atmosphere. And her children also looked happily forward to a chance of living in a distant, wild place.

But after a time Yuri and Natalia realized that their life would not be as easy as expected. For they are just like the winds, blowing in different directions, have different ways of looking at things and that it is harder and harder for them to find words of comfort to each other.
